BRIO welcomes the opportunity to train residents from all backgrounds of medicine. Training is provided by TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine, where residents will be paired with a specialist to complete their field of orthopaedic study.
SAUSHEC is a joint military service activity consisting of Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC) and the 59th Medical Wing (59 MDW). It is an entity for the Department of Defense that provides unified and central management and administration for the military graduate medical education programs that are based in San Antonio, Texas. BRIO is pleased support this program by providing the financial backing to allow orthopaedic surgeons completing their residencies to perform their rotations at TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine. To date, we have trained seven PGY5 Residents under this program.
First year family practice residents have been working with TSAOG Orthopaedics & Spine since July 2017. The purpose of this rotation is to provide exposure and clinical experience in evaluating patients and managing acute and chronic orthopaedic conditions. Residents work with a multi-disciplinary team to address injury prevention, appropriate indications for surgical intervention, and effective postoperative management. Multiple family practice residents and management residents have joined us for their orthopaedic rotations that include clinic and surgical observation, physical therapy, and casting education.
